Maryville’s Hy-Vee hosted a benefit dinner for us on Wednesday, March 20, featuring “Breakfast for Dinner”. Proceeds from the 3-hour special dinner are being donated to our efforts.
Of course, we can’t express how excited we are to have the support of Hy-Vee, and especially catering manager Sara Tompkins, who made it all happen.
Hy-Vee also put some feminine products on sale, $1 for small packs of tampons. That made for a perfect last-minute donation by customers. We had a cash donation box handed out information cards. This was our first big “outing” and we’re hopeful our efforts will help spread the word in the community as we develop our mission and identify community partners.
We’ll have a “That Time of the Month” Dinner once a month (of course!) on Wednesdays. If you’re in the neighborhood, come and see us!
